Forget cramming four bikes onto a hitch-mounted, hanging-style rack when you”re vehicle”s equipped with the incredibly easy-to-use, well-bolstered Yakima FourTimer Hitch Rack. Alleviating many of the problems inherent to hanging-style hitch racks, the FourTimer uses offset cradles with secure-ratcheting straps to prevent bikes from rubbing and bumping during transport. And because it”s designed with a releasable outer arm, the FourTimer quickly transforms from a four-bike carrier to a two-bike carrier in seconds, allowing you to customize the rack”s carrying capacity for regular trail rides and family road trips alike. Its custom tire trays work with virtually any bike up to 45 pounds, regardless of wheel size or width, even carrying wide-fender cruisers and fat bikes with massive 4. 8-inch tires. Plus, you”ll appreciate the rack”s padded arms, which safely secure over your bikes” top tubes without scratching or chipping away paint. And when you”re done riding for the day, crack open a frosty beverage with the integrated bottle opener. This hitch-mounted bike carrier works with 2-inch receivers straight from the box, securely locking to your receiver with the included SKS (Single Key System) hitch lock. And since it uses Yakima”s SKS locking system, you can easily swap out the key core with sets of two, four, six, eight, or ten SKS lock cores (sold separately) for one-key access to all of your Yakima racks and accessories. Offering maximum convenience when you”re road tripping and traveling, the FourTimer Hitch Rack folds down with bikes loaded for easy-access to your vehicle”s trunk or rear hatch. Moreover, you”ll appreciate the rack”s fold-up functionality when it”s not in use, making for easier backing up and parking without worrying about clearance issues.
